5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: No matter what time it is, I always feel safe walking around campus. Since it isn't in the middle of town , the only people on campus are students or staff.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although some of the professors are extremely difficult, most of the professors are very nice and helpful, doing anything to help the students. For some of the courses there is a professor you want and don't want.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career expo allows the students beginning freshman year to meet people in industry in order to network and apply for internship opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The first year the students are in the oldest dorms, which are the closet to the classes which are nice. The rooms for upperclassman are further but nicer, except for the suites which are not as good as the apartment style. Since this is a difficult school, the social atmosphere is not huge due to studying.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The only things Greeks do on campus is paint a rock and get in the way as you walk to class.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at this school are not that important because the only one that participate are usually pilots due to their easy courses. The engineers are the biggest portion of this school and don't have time to participate or attend.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The small school feel is very beneficial to the students, because you have the ability to get to know the professors. This also means it is easier to get help directly from the professor. Also, the class sizes are small allowing you to enjoy the experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Internet and parking spaces could be improved, but overall it is helpful

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know people in Greek life but most don't talk about it unless it's to schedule meetings

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It could use improvement as the athletics share the gym with the general student population

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is good for studying the focused majors of engineering, flight, and business

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The personal safety on campus is great, but there is still petty theft on campus as there is in almost any school. Also many people leave there bikes unlocked and people tend to take or move them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes at Embry-Riddle are awesome. The professors are always willing to answer your questions and the sizes are small so the teacher gets to know you better.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from Embry-Riddle is own of the best you can have in the aerospace industry. Many companies look for students from here because they know we are well educated in our fields.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. Their roommate matching system is really good. The only downside is the number of rooms on campus so their is a big waiting list for room spots.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our greek life is small because of our school size but a big part of our school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I would say our athletics at Embry-Riddle are good, however, we don't have many teams because of our size.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, an institution founded exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' historic 1903 lift-off at Kitty Hawk, N.C., is where students and academics take flight. With a focus on aviation, aerospace, and engineering, Embry-Riddle offers more than 40 degree programs, in addition to master's and doctoral paths. The academics are what most students rave about, as the courses are challenging and rewarding, although engineering majors are known for especially getting the brunt of the workload. But even though professors pack their syllabi with a lot of assignments and projects, they truly care about their students, and students are thankful for this attention, especially with how high the tuition is (you get what you pay for!). The instructors are so attentive because it’s a small school, but sometimes this smallness can be a drawback, especially when it comes to the athletic programs. Not many students participate in varsity athletics, and there is scarce school spirit to support these teams, so if you're hoping to see flying banners in addition to planes, you're more likely to see the latter. Good news for the ladies' spirits, though: Guys are plentiful on campus, making up approximately 80 percent of the population.

Located in beautiful Prescott, Ariz., Embry-Riddle experiences sunny weather nearly year-round, which may be a reason why the surrounding area is known as a retirement community with little nightlife. Many students travel to Phoenix for more exciting attractions, with the state capital being about an hour and a half from campus. But while the Prescott area consists of an older community, that means that the crime rate is relatively low, which makes students feel safe in their surroundings. Plus, everything on campus is mostly within walking distance, so there's no need to have a car. If you do have a car, though, parking is readily available. If you need to get off campus and don't have a vehicle, the best advice would be to make a friend with one. To get to the airport, the University offers free shuttles for students, and by the end of your time at Embry-Riddle, you'll probably be able to tell your pilot how to fly the plane.
